Art of the Cocktail Class – 2022 ONLINE!

7:00pm—9:00pm

AS FEATURED IN THE WASHINGTON POST!  In this series, I will be reprising the history of the cocktail from 1806 to modern times! We will learn a lot about whisky, gin, vermouth, bitters, and the colorful characters behind the bar (like Jerry Thomas, Orasmus Wilson, and many more).  We'll mostly be making drinks and having fun, so don't sweat the details too much here!

Classes will run every Friday night at 7pm via Zoom.  Ingredients will be easy to obtain, and the lessons will be fun as ever.  Since this will be via Zoom, I expect lots of interaction and questions and good times.  It's a drinks class, after all!  As I mention in many of my classes, this class will be equal parts, cocktail how-to, education, and fun.

THIS CLASS:  NEW ORLEANS COCKTAILS

Tickets are $15 per person for the lessons, which leaves you room to purchase the ingredients.  You can purchase our spirits in our online store.
